When are painful experiences also sort of funny? How can telling stories about our troubles — from systemic discrimination to bad haircuts — help us to better understand them, and each other? Join us to explore these questions at a storytelling workshop on Friday, March 8, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Our guest, local storyteller and recent Concordia English graduate Francesca Esguerra will perform for us then guide participants to draft and (for those who want) share our own micro-stories, drawing on exercises inspired by Confabulation’s “The Shortest Story” concept. Snacks will be served.
